meizu pro 5 home fire

A Meizu Pro 5 owner has posted photos on social media in China claiming that his Meizu Pro 5 has survived a serious house fire.

The Chinese Weibo user posted photos of the results of a fire at his home. The images shows a burnt out laptop and Apple Watch next to a Meizu Pro 5 which seems to have survived the blaze unscathed.

We’re not sure how close the Meizu was in proximity to the fire but don’t suggest to try to test this out for yourself at home.

      But remember – it will cost you extra … Actually, it will cost everyone extra.

    I would have saved the pro 5 and threw a pro 6 into the flames instead ?

      I would have thrown them both in and used it as an excuse to get another new phone.

        Every excuse is a good excuse, I guess (when you have the money to do so, which sadly is not my case ?)

      Thank you I was going to say the same thing.
      If the heat was that intense and not even a scratch on the Meizu then that is cheap politics. Even metal would bend abit under intense heat.

    While it is a cool story, there are too many unknown details. Like where in relation to the fire were each of the 3 devices and did the Pro 5 come into contact with the fire.
